Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter H – Happy

These photos make me happy, especially seeing the mountain from this side of Table Bay. I never tire of looking at Table Mountain, one of the natural wonders of the world.

Famed for its strong winds, on this day, Cape Town didn’t disappoint. The kite-surfers were blissfully happy as the wind carried them high over the waves, fast.

The poor seagulls were being tossed around a bit. Many of them just sat down on the ground, infinitely safer than being swept away. Those brave enough to fly didn’t have to do much work, as the wind carried them effortlessly. As to whether they were blown where they wanted to go, well, that’s another thing altogether. Sitting down, well, that proved to be the safest bet altogether.

Enjoy the slide-show I’ve put together for you.

26 Weeks Letter Challenge: “M”

Did you know that mint tea is good for the digestion and hence should be drunk after a meal?

I couldn’t choose which photo of the Mediterranean Sea to post…so I posted both. Taken from the Tel Aviv beach front promenade.

26 Weeks Letter Challenge: H, I, J, K

You got it, I’m catching up on the 26 Weeks Letter Challenge. The last letter posted was G (you can see it here). The reasons for needing to catch up are now public (you can read that here).

H is for Heights

I for one love heights. I have no time for enclosed spaces being a bit claustrophobic myself. But heights? They are a different thing. I love those lifts that are all glass and go all the way up to the 10th floor (that’s as far as I’ve been in one of those lifts). I stand with my nose pressed against the glass looking down. It gives me quite a thrill. I’m looking forward to the time I can walk on one of those glass platform over the Grand Canyon. It may sound weird because I don’t like lifts, but the fact that I can see out (and people can see in in case it gets stuck or something) makes up for it.

I is forInfinite Views

From the top of Table Mountain your gaze goes as far as the eye can see. Not too sure if that last sentence makes sense but you know what I mean. Don’t you?

J is for Jaffa

Looking towards the old Jaffa Port – this is a gorgeous walk along the Tel Aviv promenade. I was approached by a man while I was photographing and he struck up a conversation. I brought that conversation to a screeching halt when he asked me where I was going. He was probably harmless but I kept looking over my shoulder as I walked.

K is for Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

This is one of my favourite places on earth! I’ve written ad nauseum about this piece of bliss in the middle of Cape Town. Well, I hope it hasn’t been ad nauseum. Here’s another pic, this one taken from the top of the Boomslang Tree Canopy Walkway. I’ve also written about that one, just click on the link in the previous sentence to read it.
